Silver Cross Pioneer | Review

Whenever I see Silver Cross prams being pushed around by parents, I always think to myself how comfortable babies look tucked up inside. I also always notice them, Silver Cross prams have a certain look to them - they always seem to look effortlessly stylish. Recently I had the exciting opportunity to have been able to push my little Logan about in a sand coloured Silver Cross Pioneer, to then feedback my thoughts on not just how obviously stunning it is, but just how well I feel it performs too.

A little Home Update

I really want to be more of a patient person, but I really am just one of those people that when I get something in my head, I feel like I almost have to go ahead and do whatever it is straight away. Despite being impatient, I don't think that I'm one to really rush with the decisions I make, in fact, Adam and I are both quite similar in that sense. 

We're both really into our home decor and would love our house to look like the vision we have in our heads (hey - who wouldn't?!) and home decor is one of those somethings that neither of us have ever been very good at waiting for. When we want to change something in our home, we really do want to change it right there and then. And though we're both more than happy to spend out on improving our home - for the past year and half, we haven't really been able to, because we're still saving for a loft conversion and well, that's all rather pricey!

Me and Mine: August 2015

Gosh, it is so weird to think that tomorrow is the 1st of September! This month has, of course, flown by - they all do! For Adam and I, it's been another month of learning how to juggle being parents to two very small children. It's certainly no easy thing and at times this month, we've felt quite overwhelmed. Adam and I have grown up together and have lived our lives pretty much in each others pockets - it's always worked for us that way. Having two young children, two jobs (though I'm on maternity leave from my part time job at the moment) a blog and an eBay business, can sometimes force us to be apart more than we've ever been used to. It's something we both find tough, but we know that we are building our foundations, we know our babies are still babies and we see that life changes all of the time. It's really just about how you adapt.

Logan at Two Months Old

Dear my sweet little Logan Berry, 

It's somehow been two whole months since you were born - two whole months since I've been able to hold you in my arms and see your little face! You've grown so much since birth, even though you were 9lb 1oz at birth, you're even more of a chunky monkey now! You're currently in the 95th centile for both height and weight! You seriously love milk, the more you can get the better - you're drinking 8-9lbz sometimes in one go! The great thing is though, is that you'll sleep so much at night, sometimes 9+ hours, still - I'm surprised you haven't popped!

10 Things I'm Bad At...

You're probably thinking what an odd choice of blog post.. and you're probably wondering why I'm purposely picking out the bad points about myself and totally bypassing the good. Well, the truth is, I've been thinking a lot lately about the perception that we have of everyone else lives.. the people around us, the peoples blogs that we read, the peoples videos we watch on YouTube, the people we see in magazines and on the television.. I think we all have a tendency to compare ourselves to others and wonder how everyone else is doing it - life, that is! 

So sometimes I think it's nice to throw your hands up and say "Hey - these are some of the things I get wrong or that I am bad at!".. We all have our faults, our bad habits, our weaknesses (as well as our strengths)! So on that note.. here are some of the things I am bad at..  


Why Having A Good Credit Rating Is Important To Your Family

Many of us will need to borrow money at some point in our lives, whether to tide us over until payday or to buy a home. However, it is important to borrow sensibly and not let debts get out of control. If you over-stretch yourself and do not repay your debts on time, you will damage your credit rating. 

Credit rating is one way that banks, credit card companies and other lenders make decisions on whether or not to lend you money. A good credit score can help you get better rates when you apply for a loan or mortgage.

Ted And Tess Pram String From Ambi® Toys

Little Logan and I recently rather excitngly became brand ambassadors for Galt Toys' infant toy range -  Ambi® Toys!

 For forty years now Ambi® Toys have been developing infant toys with a purity of design and colour to meet the stages of children's development, with emphasis on quality and safety. Babies and toddlers are not interested in passing trends, fashion colours or the latest gadget. They need well designed and reliable toys which don't disappoint during play and encourage their gradual discovery of themselves, others and the surrounding world. And I personally, really think that Ambi® Toys know exactly what a good toy is meant to be!
